So glad to have a top notch restaurant replacing what for years has been a Mexican Restaurant. The food is excellent, and creative, the atmosphere, good, prices are what you would expect for a restaurant of this level. I have eaten here twice, once on a Saturday, and once on a Tuesday. The only issue I have is the service can be slow. On both occasions, we had long stretches of time waiting for either the food, or service. The first time we waited forever for the server to come back to our table towards the end of the meal, check up on us, get our tab. Took a long time to pay up and leave. The second time there were sporadic periods of no waiter, and long waits between courses. The servers in both cases never looked like they were slacking, they were busy the whole time, but it seemed like they may have needed more help, or more time to learn how to manage their time better ( being a new restaurant), or the kitchen needs to be a little quicker. Hopefully this will get better over time and it is just growing pains. If not, be prepared for a slow wait for a good meal.

Food was prepared meticulously and presented beautifully. Everything served was ultra fresh. Atmosphere is city sophisticated and trendy. Music wasn't loud and didn't overwhelm conversation. Server was young and eager to please. If you want to have simply wonderfully prepared food that is 5 star quality, this is the place. Not inexpensive nor should it be for what is on offer. This is not pretentious food but simply great food.

We love seafood. We love Asian inspired food. Salt is the perfect combination. The tuna sliders were sheer perfection. The half shell oysters with a delightful minuet were inspired! I can't wait to return!

Have eaten there twice in the past week. First was for a large party - bridesmaids luncheon. They have a wonderful loft area that can accomodate up to 30 people. They were so accomodating, amazing service, and great food, This was a last minute reservation and the owners went above and beyond to serve. Also, went there this Monday night. They have half off wine on Monday nights which is nice. Food was excellent. Great beet, mozz and tomato salad, and great mahi entree. Will be back.
